My mission is to refinish this dresser to put in my room. When we moved to our new house, it no longer had a large walk-in closet. So I had to find something to fit all our "stuff". I had recently refinished a dresser for my son and loved how it turned out, so I wanted to tackle another one. I got this off KSL for 50 bucks, yay! It is very sturdy and needs very little repair. My idea was to refinish it as it looks. With the natural top and knobs and the rest a cream. That way it would withstand any color or decor changes in my bedroom over the years. But I wonder if I am taking the easy way out and instead should really do something different. I am posting this to get ideas from all two of you who frequent my blog. So bring on the suggestions. Don't feel bad if I decide to keep it as is. I want something to go well with a lot so I don't have to repaint it again. My bedding colors are reds and oranges right now, but am feeling like a change when I can afford it. My headboard and footboard are light pine. My walls are a very pale cream, but am anxious to throw up a strong color maybe this winter, not sure yet what color. So there is some info to consider while coming up with some amazing ideas for me. I will be anxiously waiting.

Bouquet of deliciousness

So this is what my sweetie surprised me with for our anniversary. A vase full of reeses (my fave). He said he thought about getting me flowers, but thought I would enjoy these more. Well, I can't say that I was dissapointed. They certainly will last longer than flowers (on my hips) and they smell just as pretty, and they are edible. What more could a girl want. Thanks babe.

Mmmmmm, can't you just smell em. I had to play a little with my macro lens. hehe

Well, 10 years has gone by since I married the man of my dreams. Yes, it was love at first sight, although I didn't realize it would actually come about. We have had 10 wonderful years growing together, laughing together, crying together, and yelling together. I have never heard of anyone saying marriage was easy and I would have to agree, but I would never ask for anyone else to learn with. Justin has been a supportive, comforting, uplifting, and obviously a handsome companion. I thank him for pushing me to think and express those thoughts and encouraging me to pursue my interests. He has helped me to become a better photographer and has increased my desire to continue learning. I love him for loving me and making me feel beautiful. He is a wonderful provider and went to work full time, school full time, and cared for his family to provide for me and our three beautiful children. He just finished his MBA at Westminster and I am so proud of him. It was such a long and hard road, but we did it. I am looking forward to the future together and falling even more in love. Thank you sweetie, for everything. Life is sweeter with you by my side. You are my tootsie in my tootsie pop.

Sorry for the quality, but it is a scanned picture. Boy, we sure have come a long way in photos in the past ten years. Digital just started to enter the field. I have been doing photography for 12 years and what I do now is so vastly different then 12 years ago. I am having so much fun.
